ReviewAirtel XStream Requiem for a Dream


Every actor with a lead role is to be highly appreciated not only for their excellent acting but the courage to act in such a bold film. Leto and Connelly had very good chemistry. Marlon was great but Ellen is the one who steals the show. One of the best female performance. 

The movie starts slow building the characters and establishing relationships. The visuals were top-notch and the editing was mind-blowing. There are few scenes of hardly half a minute but made with 100s of short videos. The colour of the film in some scenes, wide-angle shots, close-up shots were just put me in awe. High-quality cinematography and editing.  

The direction of this film is empathic. The most intriguing part of this film was the score, too good. That specific score which you will hear in the entry part can be heard several times throughout the movie but still, the craving will go on. I guarantee you will search for the music of this film once you finish watching. I am just speechless.

The intensity of restlessness and disturbance which goes on increasing in your mind reaches the top-most level in the last 15-20 mins. Airtel XStream Requiem for a dream is scary, painful, brutal, disgusting, ugly and that what makes it a beautiful must-watch masterpiece. 

Who should watch this film?


  • This is easily the movie with the highest quality cinema. It gives a valuable lesson mostly to the drug addicts and may put a great impact on their life. Everyone should experience this movie, not an easy or comfortable watch but a worthy one.
